Presbyterian Support Southland’s (PSS) vision is a community where all people can make the most of their strengths and feel included, valued and safe.

To make this vision a reality, we assist and encourage people facing life’s challenges. PSS is a Charitable Trust and Southland’s largest social service and aged care provider. Our two service arms, Family Works and Enliven, provide a range of services in response to the changing needs of individuals and family/whānau in the wider community of Southland.

We work to enable a positive and lasting change for everyone in our community and offer support services to people regardless of their beliefs, ethnicity or background.

Resthaven Village is an integral part of the Eastern Southland community, located in the very heart of Gore. We provide residential and hospital level care. Living at Resthaven often means residents can remain living in an environment they have grown up in - close to family and friends.
